The Building Well-Being Narrative resonates with policymakers  

Featured in the June 27, 2019 Reframing Network Newsletter is the  Illinois Collaboration on Youth’s (ICOY)  statement on the state’s fiscal year 2020 budget. Included are the following examples of  ICOY’s  reframing language: 

  • Uses the value of human potential, including the benefits to society, early in the text: “We know that all children and youth have the capacity to succeed; when our young people can achieve their potential, they are able to give back and contribute to our society in positive ways.”
  • Incorporates the construction metaphor.
    • By referring to those who will benefit from investments as people “who need community support to weather life’s storms,” indicating they’re affected by factors outside of their control.
    • By referencing investments in child and youth-serving systems with maintenance and repair language: “rebuilding the human serviceinfrastructure,” “shore up the foundation,” “repair what has been broken,” and “stabilize these systems.”
  • Maintains a reasonable tone and is solutions-oriented.
